The 2023 Lake Forest Showhouse & Gardens is an elegant home set on 9 acres of beautifully landscaped property, including a 5-acre conservation area. Walter Frazier designed the estate in 1969. His work encompasses over 21 homes in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff.
The 16-room red brick five-part structure features two low, flat-roofed one-story links leading to two temple like wings on the east and west. The first-floor primary bedroom wing has a flexible arrangement of five rooms, and there is a minimum of 6 bedrooms and 4.3 baths. All of the south-facing main rooms open to the blue stone patio and gracious lawn.
In addition, there is a charming, updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath caretaker’s cottage; an additional outbuilding with garages, workroom, kennels, and 2 finished rooms with ½ bath, kitchenette and fireplace; and a separate 3 car garage.
